A Long-term and Strategic Investment: Hull PCT
Jo Stott is the Public Health Lead for Hull Teaching Primary Care Trust. Jo’s presentation looked at the importance of involving lay people in public health and the challenges to their involvement. Issues such as the value of lay people, payment/incentives and professional attitudes were highlighted, as well as the need to build positive relationships with individuals, communities and the voluntary sector. Jo looked at what the government and public sector should be doing to support local people to be active. Examples of successful work in Hull were given including Healthwise Hull, the work of Community Health Development and Public Health Outreach Workers, work with the Gypsy & Traveller Community, and the Voluntary Sector Procurement process. The presentation concluded with a summary of why lay involvement is important.
